How many great rock bands are made up of members of previous other bands? How many ancestors to great bands are there? I can think all day on this. Goes back to before Jimmy Page played with the Yardbirds, and will continue past when Chris Cornell sings and Slash plays for AudioSlave.
The Falling Walnuts are made up of Barry Schnoor, originally from Placid Quake, and Jeff Claman, of Washington Underground Singlespeed Society.
The live performances have been well documented in both video and audio form, invoking the memories of girls, bic lighters in hand, swaying out-of-beat to the music performed by these two.
The photo here is of their latest EP, "Spin the Big Ring."
RollingStone Magazine plans an interview. Stand by.
